« back to Boardwalk
How late are the performers out at Disney's Boardwalk area? How late are the shops and restaurants open there? We are making our first trip to WDW in October and I am trying to plan as much out as possible. Love your Mom Panel!

Thanks for your questions! I bet your family is looking forward to visiting the Walt Disney World Resort
for the first time this fall. There’s so much to see and do, especially with all the exciting additions in New Fantasyland!
I stayed at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
this past winter for the first time and loved the entire area. Jellyrolls, ESPN Club and Atlantic Dance Hall stay open as late as 2 a.m. most nights, and other restaurants and shops until 10 or 11 p.m. If you need a late-night snack, there is a pizza window that is generally open until midnight and serves pizza by the slice or whole pies, in addition to beverages and desserts.
Thursday through Saturday evenings are when you will find the street performers on Disney's BoardWalk
. You may see jugglers, balancing acts, street musicians and other fun performances that add to the lively ambiance of the popular area. The hours for the street performers are generally 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.
I hope this helps, Shannon, and that you have a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort visit. Please ask me any other questions you may have as you continue to plan!
Wishing you magic,
